crown lengthening

Crown lengthening reduces gum tissue and shaves down bone when necessary so more of the tooth is above the gum’s surface. A properly fitted crown allows for better oral hygiene and comfort. Some people seek crown lengthening to alter a “gummy smile,” in which the gums are visible above the teeth when smiling. Crown lengthening is a surgical procedure performed by a specialist periodontist. There are a number of reasons for considering crown lengthening in a treatment plan.

 

The most common conditions requiring crown lengthening are:

  • Teeth that are too short.
  • Tooth decay that is severe below the gum line.
  • A broken or fractured tooth beneath the gum line.

Frequently Asked Questions

The most common conditions requiring crown lengthening are: teeth that are too short, tooth decay that is severe below the gum line, or a broken or fractured tooth beneath the gum line. When a tooth experiences severe decay or breaks, the healthy area that remains is reduced.

Crown lengthening generally isn't a painful procedure. Since local anesthesia is administered, patients don't feel any kind of discomfort. Once the anesthetic wears off, the patient might feel some pain for which your dentist will prescribe pain relievers.

Sutures are usually placed to keep the tissue in place. You will either have dissolvable gut sutures that will come out by themselves in 4-6 days or you will have silk suture that we will remove when we see you on your next visit.

When eating after crown lengthening, softer foods are strongly recommended for the first 5-7 days after the surgery. Do not eat foods that require heavy pressure for chewing. Please avoid foods that are hard, sticky, or spicy. Colder and lukewarm foods are best for the next 24 hours after procedure.

GUM Depigmentation

Excess melanin can build up in the gums, making them look brown or black instead of pink. The most common cause of darker pigments in the gums is genetics. Patients seek treatment because of an aesthetic preference for pink gums that showcase their teeth better. Other causes for dark gums include smoking, side effects from certain medications and possible effect of amalgam fillings on the gum.

TREATMENT PROCESS

Laser Gum Depigmentation vaporizes and removes a thin top layer of the gum tissue, destroying the cells that produce melanin. As new tissue is created during healing, it tends to be pink rather than brown. The treatment has a short recovery time with manageable discomfort. Sometimes depending on the colour and depth of the dark patch, it could take several sessions to achieve the desired degree of lightening. One gum depigmentation treatment can last 20 years or up to a lifetime

teeth whitening

Teeth whitening done by a dentist can get teeth brighter faster. The bleaching solution is usually much stronger than at-home kits. Also, heat, light, or a combination of the two may be used to speed and intensify the whitening process. Zoom is one of the fastest and most popular in office services for teeth whitening. Teeth can be whitened for up to eight shades lighter in under an hour. Teeth whitening is for someone with healthy enamel, as it wont work on crowns,veneers or tooth decay.

Studies of teeth whitening products using 10% carbamide peroxide showed no effect on the hardness or mineral content of a tooth’s enamel surface. Professional teeth whitening does not cause permanent damage to the enamel on your teeth, and is considered harmless by most dental health professionals.

The process takes only 30-minutes, (2 – 15-minute applications) to achieve a whiter and brighter smile. It is broken down into two 15-minute applications to allow for maximum gel concentration and light exposure, without being under the light for too long of a period to cause gum irritation. Individuals with sensitive teeth may reduce the intensity of the bleaching unit by choosing a lower power setting and those with very heavy stains may need additional treatments.

When you visit your dental office for professional tooth whitening, your dentist will have you wear a tray during the treatment that will cover your teeth with a specially formulated whitening gel. Also, your dentist may use a type of light to enhance the whitening effects of the gel.

   

teeth recontouring

Small corrections in the teeth can bring about a sea of change. This is possible by shaping teeth, also known as enamel shaping or recontouring. This is the simplest and instant treatment in tooth reshaping and cosmetic dentistry. The tooth recontouring can correct slightly chipped, cracked and overlapped teeth which helps avoid expensive dental treatments.

Painless. Because only surface enamel is removed in tooth reshaping and dental contouring, there's generally no discomfort during the procedure and no anesthesia is required.

Tooth reshaping and dental contouring are best for people who just need tiny adjustments or repairs to improve the look and feel of their teeth. It is ideal for someone who has a tooth that is a little crooked, too pointy, or one side sticks out more than the other.

tooth recontouring procedure

Tooth re-contouring procedures are relatively quick and can generally be completed in one visit.

ceramic crowns

All-Ceramic crowns are cosmetic dental restorations used to cap or completely cover a tooth being restored. All-Ceramic crowns are translucent and are the most natural looking tooth replacement. Only All-Ceramic crowns have such translucency.
Dental crowns are caps placed on top of damaged teeth. Crowns are used to protect, cover and restore the shape of your teeth when fillings don’t solve the problem. Dental crowns can be made out of metals, porcelain, resin and ceramics. They typically don’t require special care over time other than regular good oral hygiene.
All-ceramic crowns are a marvel of modern cosmetic dentistry and because of their natural appearance, all-ceramic crowns are perfect for treating damaged teeth.
All ceramic is a very popular option for those who prioritise appearance, or for front teeth, as it generally looks the closest to natural tooth. One might also prefer an all-ceramic crown if you suffer from any metal allergies.
On average, all-ceramic crowns last about 15 years. With proper care, though, it is not uncommon to see them last up to 25 years or more.

smile design treatment

Smile designing is a cosmetic treatment that involves artistic and skilful improvement of your natural smile in order to achieve an attractive, healthy and pleasing smile. Smile designing often involves multiple dental procedures. With Smile design, the patient can restore his/her teeth to be flawless and white, helping you feel more confident in your smile.
Procedures such as dental veneers, composite bonding, teeth whitening and tooth implant.
Some of the cosmetic procedures like tooth bleaching, veneers etc. are not permanent. Dental hygiene habits like proper brushing, flossing and diet intake etc. to best care for your restorations will assist in keeping up the new grin for quite a long time to come.
The post treatment guidelines suggest brushing your teeth at least 2-3 times a day with a non-abrasive fluoride toothpaste, use of alcohol-free mouthwash, and regular flossing. One must avoid intake of high-sugar food in order to prevent cavities, limited consumption of coffee and soda in order to avoid stains and spots on your teeth.

full mouth reconstruction

Full mouth reconstruction refers to rebuilding or replacing all of the teeth in a patient’s mouth. Full mouth reconstructions combine esthetics with the science of restorative dentistry to improve the function,health, and beauty of the mouth. Some treatment options may require the patient to undergo a unique type of full mouth reconstruction that not only involves the replacement of missing teeth, but potentially restoration of missing structures of the oral cavity. In general, any dental treatment that affects all teeth in the mouth is called full mouth reconstruction or full mouth rehabilitation.
The reason why this procedure is called a full mouth reconstruction is that it includes more than one cosmetic dental procedure. These procedures typically involve dental bridges, dental crowns, fillings, dental implants, tooth extractions, veneers and much more.
The full mouth reconstruction process will take multiple appointments to customize the restoration and then install it. However, it will be worth it since the restoration will give back complete functionality of the teeth.
When you have multiple teeth that are missing or damaged, then a full reconstruction of your mouth just may be necessary in order to fix your dental problems. Many dental patients experience one or two dental issues that need to be fixed so they can once again have good oral health.

BRIDGES & CROWNS

BRIDGE

This is a dental restoration used to span or ‘bridge’ an edentulous area (space where teeth are missing). A bridge is made of two or more crowns for the teeth adjacent to the missing tooth. These anchoring teeth are called abutment teeth with a false tooth in the middle. The false tooth or pontic can be of different materials like porcelain, ceramic, gold, depending on the size of the gap, aesthetics and function.

Crown

A crown covers the whole tooth or a part of the tooth and is commonly referred to as a ‘cap’. Different materials can be used to prepare the crown depending on factors such as patient preference. function/aesthetics and the condition of the tooth. Over time, teeth can be damaged, cracked or weakened by decay. Dentists use a crown to entirely cover or “cap” a damaged tooth. Crowns are made to match the color of your natural teeth, and besides strengthening an impaired tooth, these can be used to improve your teeth’s appearance, shape or alignment. Dental crowns can be fashioned from stainless steel, ceramic, acrylic, gold and metal alloys. Unlike removable devices such as dentures, crowns are cemented onto existing teeth or implants, and can only be removed by your dentist.
Both dental bridges and dental crowns make use of prosthetic devices to bring back your lost smile. According to the dentists, a crown is used when a tooth is damaged or fractured, while a bridge is used when one or more than one tooth is missing. There are several positive effects of dental bridges, which account for their frequency of use in restorative dental work. Firstly, dental bridges are an effective solution for the replacement of missing teeth in the mouth, offering both functional and aesthetic correction. In terms of function, the bridge allows a patient to chew and eat normally as there is no longer a gap in the jaw and the bridge can assist with the mastication of food. It can also help individuals to speak without inhibition, filling the gap in the teeth which may alter the placement of the tongue and the way sounds are made in the mouth.
Dental bridges are a common solution for missing teeth. Dentists have used them for many years.
Crowns are versatile and can be used to cover a discolored or misshapen tooth, hold a dental implant in place, protect a weak tooth, or make a modification to your smile, but they are most commonly used to cover or “cap” a damaged tooth. They are a good choice for both front and back teeth and fortunately, come made of a variety of materials like ceramic or porcelain which will look like a natural tooth. In this procedure, your damaged tooth is sanded down and crown that looks like your natural tooth is cemented on top of it. Once it is in place, it will be difficult to tell the difference between the crown and your real teeth.

DENTURES

A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissues. They restore full functionality and are custom designed. Our dentists work very closely with their denture patients to ensure the best fit and look. We aim to provide comfort and flawless looks every time.

 

Our customised full/partial dentures provide support, stability and retention which are believed to be attributes of a good denture. The team at Dental World shall put in careful consideration when they select the shape and colour while making the denture teeth so that they can perfectly complement other teeth and give a natural look.

 

We give out extremely high-quality work to the patients who visit us, and we make sure that the dentures seem so original and fit well that you forget you have them on.

Types Of Dentures

When one or more natural teeth remain on the jaw, then partial dentures are used. One part of the denture has been designed so that it can fasten itself on to the healthy abutment teeth, while the job of evenly distributing the bite forces and completing your smile is done by the remaining prosthetic teeth. We also have dentures without metal clips and that gives a natural look.

When all your upper and lower teeth are missing or have to undergo extracting, that is when complete or full dentures are needed. They are well-designed to fit snugly and directly over your gums and jawbone. They are lightweight, very comfortable and extremely original.

They are full/partial dentures that get support from one or more dental implants. These are guaranteed to stay stable and not move inside the mouth.

Maxillofacial Prosthodontics

Prostheses are often needed to replace missing areas of bone or tissue and restore oral functions such as swallowing, speech, and chewing. In other instances, a prosthesis for the face or body may be indicated for cosmetic and psychosocial reasons.

 

Patients that typically desire prosthetic care are those that have been in an accident, have had surgical removal of diseased tissues, or have a neuromuscular disorder. The overall goal of all maxillofacial prosthetic treatment is to improve the quality of life.

DENTAL FILLINGS

To treat a cavity your dentist will remove the decayed portion of the tooth and then “fill” the area on the tooth where the decayed material was removed.

Fillings are also used to repair cracked or broken teeth and teeth that have been worn down from misuse (such as from nail-biting or tooth grinding).
